2008 Lexus 460L Executive model, stopped blowing cold air suddenly earlier today. For the past week or so, it seemed like the car will get warm when not in motion say at a traffic light even when the AC was set to 65 deg but when in motion the AC would seem okay. Called my routine mechanic he said it may be a leak or an electrical problem. Any insights on this.
Another thing I noticed for a few minutes just before the AC went out, the transmission seemed a little jerky and lagging, as in I pushed the accelerator but the car wouldn't respond. Not sure if there is a connection, but any insight is appreciated. Thanks!
The air intake control for the cabin is set to stay in the recirculate mode when the outside air temperature is above 75 degrees F and the AC is on. This does not work in Florida as the air temperature is above 75 most of the time. I have to remember to manually switch to fresh air intake every time I start the car.
This is a serious defect as it will never switch out of recirculate no matter how long you are driving. Does anybody have a solution to this problem?

Hi have a strange problem that just cropped up on my 2008 IS250 with about 60,000 km. When the heater/AC blower is running on the flow-through setting only (not on recirculate) it makes a loud sound like a baseball card stuck in bicycle spokes. It stops after a few minutes but it is loud enough that I am running only on recirculate. Before I take this to the dealer, any suggestions? Please and thank you!!
I bought a can of A/C pro (http://www.ruralking.com/id-quest-a-c-pro-r-134a-20-oz-refrigerant-all-in-one-solution-w-gauge-acp-100.html) for my other car and after using it I still have some refrigerant left over in the can. I was just wondering if this is usable in my 98 Lexus GS300 and if so then where is the nozzle/low point to attach the tube to in the engine? It would probably be good to finish the can and fill up my GS300 if it is low on refrigerant.
